donnell of virginia, who is the chairman of the republican governors association, is onboard. his state of virginia is a no kid hungry state. and we have governor dion and governor snyder who are also republicans. so that was heartening. and wanted to go there and support them and encourage more republican governors to come onboard, because talk about patriotism, you know, if we're not taking care of our kids, we're not taking care of our country. if another country was doing this to our kids, we'd be at war, right? 16 million kids. one in five. >> who's anti-kid? >> the real issue is that these kids are not only vulnerable but voiceless. they don't make political action committee contributions. they don't have lobbyists. when you go into a governor's office and tell them that these programs are in place, like school breakfast and summer meals and the snack food stamp program, but not as many kids are enrolled, they're shocked and only because these kids haven't had an opportunity to have a voice in their office. and most of them, democrats and republicans, want to do the right thing if they unders

typical of what allowed him to win a number of previously republican states like colorado and virginia. one was the growing minority population, but also was growing discontent. what is different this time? they are banking heavily on social issues like contracept n contraception, gay marriage, to hold those voters. is obama in position to hold the suburban voters he won in north carolina last night? >> that's why they are driving so hard on these social issues. but if you look at a single working woman, if you look at a working mother, they are worse off than they were four years ago. they have a harder time getting employment, making ends meet. even purchasing health care, which the president is now touting. it's nice to see him coming around defending a policy that's pretty tough to defend. if you look at the suburbs of charlotte, you have a great example of one of my colleagues, one of our colleagues in the house, larry kissell. his district starts 10 miles from where we sit right here. he refused to come to the convention. he is one of the host congressmen. larry kissell is a vul

virginia. the death of u.s. ambassador chris stevens is a tragedy for his family. it is a tragedy in the diplomatic community. but it is a major moment in u.s. foreign policy right now. what do you think this signifies this morning? >> john, there's no question that this is a tragic situation. our hearts go out to the families involved here. you know on 9/11 when that tragedy hit the united states, i was the newest elected member of congress and i remember we got through that for two reasons. the first thing is that we tried to calm the nation down. which i think is always important for us to do. so we're making decisions that are reasonable and rational and not emotional. but the second thing is, then, to analyze our policies and see which ones do we need to continue? and which ones do we need to change? i think we need to do the same thing in this situation. we need to take the time to pause, get all the facts, and examine our policies and look at them and see if there's anything different we need to be doing. >> what do we need to change then? finish that statement for me? >> i
